What’s Up With: Fernando Rodney

Acquiring Fernando Rodney by trade in exchange for the proverbial PTBNL, as the Cubs did yesterday, is the baseball equivalent of buying a beat-up Ferrari for a fixer upper and putting the charge on your AmEx. Best case scenario, you’ve got a Ferrari and you don’t have to pay until the bill comes due (at which point you’ll be happy to do so). Worst case, you’ve got a beat...

The Mariners have finally ended the Fernando Rodney era

The Seattle Mariners finally put their foot down and said “enough”. After Saturday’s ten inning loss to the Chicago White Sox, Seattle DFAed closer Fernando Rodney six weeks before the end of his two-year, $14 million deal signed prior to the 2014 season. Rodney was great last year for the Mariners, striking out 76 and walking 28 over 66 1/3 innings, pitching to a 2.85 ERA...

Seattle Mariners: The Fernando Rodney experiment continues

Despite a great 2014 campaign, Seattle Mariners closer Fernando Rodney has experienced some struggles to start off the 2015 season. Through five appearances, Rodney has posted an ERA of 12.46 and a WHIP of 2.54. These numbers are appalling for somebody who is usually near the top of the league in saves. His first blown save was against Oakland on April 12th. Felix Hernandez had pitched...

Dear Fernando Rodney – Just Pull Yourself Together

When I went to the Seattle Mariners’ home opener in April, Fernando Rodney walked out onto the mound and a man standing next to me grabbed the bill of my baseball cap and turned it to the side.  First, I was like, “Don’t touch me.”  Second, I was all, “Oh, we have a reliever that has a shtick.  And he seems good!”  Well, that wore off quickly. Though Rodney is tied...
